Brendan and Kate McCarthy – Nantucket, MA

“When we decided to get married on Nantucket, we knew we would face the added challenges that accompany planning a wedding at a remote location.  Of particular concern was getting the right music for the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the reception. We worked with several booking agents and spent the better part of a summer traveling around New England to hear various bands and musicians.  While we heard some great live music, and met some really great people, we struggled to find a band that would be the right fit for our wedding.  After months of striking out, a friend referred us to Danny Gallagher.  We went to see him and his band play and knew from the first song that they were the band for us.  Their talent level, personalities, and versatility were several notches above any band we had looked at.  They also had the unique ability to cover various, contrasting styles of music with ease.  When the big day arrived, they were simply awesome.  In addition to what was on the song list Danny helped us prepare, they took several requests and even played an impromptu song with two of our groomsmen.  When our wedding was done – no one wanted to leave.  We pointed all of the guests to the Brotherhood of Thieves, a local bar on the island, and invited Danny to come too.  He and one of his band members showed up with their acoustic guitars, and kept the bar rocking til close.  Danny and his band literally made our wedding.”

“The Danny Gallagher Band set the world on fire at our Wedding in Maine. Our guests who had flown from all over the world were in awe, as were we.   From the violin accompanying the wedding party into the ceremony, to Danny’s live performance for the first dance to the beat that was generated to get everybody hopping throughout the night. It was just a  fantastic performance that friends and family are still talking about many months later.

If you want live music at your wedding to make it that much more memorable – book Danny – it’s as simple as that”

Dana and Christine Labb – Newport, RI

“As a musician, I was under a lot of pressure to make sure the music at my wedding was flawless.  I wanted to do something that was special for the ceremony, cocktail hour and the first dance.  I contacted Danny Gallagher and he was immediately on the job!  Together we planned a beautiful ceremony where he played songs that meant a lot to us but he additionally suggested songs that were the perfect fit.  On top of everything else, I had written a surprise song for my soon-to-be wife and because I was not playing it, I had to trust Danny with the execution of this very personal moment.  Danny learned the song, arranged it with his own style and HE NAILED IT!  Christine was swept away, the guests were crying and I was singing along to her.  At the cocktail hour, Danny and his band played a nice mix of upbeat original and cover tunes.  For the first dance, Danny came right out on the dance floor with us as the soundtrack to the beginning of our life together!  We could not have been happier!  We still have people commenting on the music of 10/10/2010!  On a scale of 1 – 10 it was an 11!!  Thanks Danny!”
